Nigerian youngsters on the verge of penning European deals following Viareggio Cup heroics

At least three Nigerian youngsters who impressed scouts at the recently concluded 2024 Viareggo Cup in Italy are on the verge of penning European deals.

Ojodu City FC showcased an impressive performance in the tournament, despite being narrowly edged out by eventual champions, Beyond Limit in the semi-final.

Notably, Hafiz Ibrahim emerged as one of the top scorers, tallying a total of 9 goals throughout the competition.

While Hafiz Ibrahim is on the verge of finalizing a move to Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt, his teammates Subair and Sheriff are currently testing their skills at Italian Serie D club, Atletico Ascoli FC.

If they manage to impress during the trials, Subair and Sheriff could begin their professional journeys, gaining further recognition along the way.

Hafiz Ibrahim’s outstanding performance at the Viareggio Cup attracted interest from top European clubs such as Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Fiorentina. However, Bodo/Glimt succeeded in securing his signature, ahead of the other interested clubs.
